Joanie first began her relationship with The School as a parent when her son was in 3rd grade.  She has had many roles here since then: Parent Association President, substitute teacher, teaching assistant, and has lately landed in administration as the Communications Specialist.  In this capacity she still does a lot of different things, among them are the weekly eMinders, website whispering, social media, and the McGillis Musings.  Joanie likes to keep herself busy and out of trouble.  She has a creative bent that leads to her favorite activities like fixing things, quilting, gardening, and strumming stringed instruments.  She is an avid reader and dreams of a time when she can sit endlessly by the ocean with a good book.
